Westboro baptist church

God Hates Congress……and fags

I’ve been a fan of bashing Westboro Baptist church for the last couple years.  Now it seems that they may have finally been restricted from their bullshit veteran funeral protests.  Congress just passed the “Honoring America’s Veterans and Caring for Camp Lejeune Families Act of 2012″.     Below are some details on the effects of the legislation.

Westboro Baptist Church protesters will soon be severely limited in their ability to disrupt military funerals, after Congress passed a sweeping veterans bill this week that includes restrictions on such demonstrations.  According to “The Honoring America’s Veterans and Caring for Camp Lejeune Families Act of 2012,” which is now headed to President Barack Obama’s desk, demonstrators will no longer be allowed to picket military funerals two hours before or after a service. The bill also requires protestors to be at least 300 feet away from grieving family members. This aspect of the legislation was introduced by Sen. Olympia Snowe (R-Maine), who, at the urging of a teenage constituent, proposed new limitations on military funeral demonstrations as a response to a 2011 Supreme Court case that ruled such actions were protected under the First Amendment.  -Huffington Post

The “Honoring America’s Veterans and Caring for Camp Lejeune Families Act of 2012″ was signed in on August 6th  The law intends to curb protests at military funerals by increasing the buffer around the funerals from 300 feet to 500 feet, and increasing the buffer around access routes to a funeral service from 150 feet to 300 feet. The “quiet time” when no protests are permitted is increased to two hours before and after the service, up from one hour. The law also creates harsher penalties for violators, who will now face unspecified fines and up to two years in prison, instead of a maximum of one year.    Next I say they pull their 503c tax free status.  Hell, what’s it take to get one of those 503c’s statuses anyway?  Make a group and proclaim that you believe in a man in the sky?    Well, Westboro’s ‘man in the sky’ hates all of us, so screw him and his Negative Nancy followers; they can pay up.

 

 

Westboro Baptist Church ACLU Lawyer

Ben Wizner – ACLU Douchbag

An attorney from the ACLU that made some statements that reminded me of the state of mind many Americans are in.  Ben Wizner stated,  “The law will not only prohibit Rev. Fred Phelps and Westboro Baptist Church from demonstrating, but also those in favor of the military, Wizner said.  “We’ve learned in this country it’s very difficult to regulate one kind of speech and not all kinds,”.    No Mr. Un-Wizner, it’s really not that difficult.  You may have been dumbed down by  the ‘blame happy’, ‘don’t accept responsibility’, ‘common sens out the window’, legalistic culture we have today, but some of us can’t embrace your perspective.  It CAN be regulated in a very simple way.  If there are a bunch of assholes hanging out and disturbing your funeral procession call the cops and kick them out.  If they’re not acting like a munch of assholes……they can stay.  Is that too difficult?
